How many turns for spiral balance adjustment?

A home owner from new mexico says:
When starting to adjust a new spiral balance on a sash window how many turns to the right is a good figure to start with?

Paul from SWISCO responded:
First, with your finger, pull the spiral a few inches from the colored tip. Then, with your charging tool, give it three full turns. Three turns should do it; if not, give it one more turn, but no more than five turns. Be sure to keep your turns balanced, same number on each side.
